Dharma Assembly on the first Day of the Sixth Month in Chinese Lunar Calendar
July 4, 2016 was the first day of the sixth month in the Chinese lunar calendar; the sun shone like the Buddha’s light, which illuminated all. At 10 am, the Sangha and laity started to make Grand Meal Offering and Four Saints Offering, and then chanted the “Universal Door of Guanshiyin Bodhisattva.” At 11:30 am, the devotees experienced the lunch service and vegan food. At noon, Ven. Xianchu introduced the basics of Buddhist etiquette to everyone. In the afternoon, the group had a free-exchange session. More than 40 devotees took part in this Dharma Assembly.
